Ph. Pierluigi Benini e Studio Labics

The doors of the 'new' Palazzo dei Diamanti finally open to the public, are you curious to discover the long-awaited exhibition 'Rinascimento a Ferrara. Ercole de' Roberti e Lorenzo Costa' and the outcome of the restoration of the legendary palace with its diamond-shaped ashlar, symbol of Ferrara in the world?

The Ferrarese Officina profile on the one hand, and the city's most representative exhibition venue and one of the most important nationwide on the other. A combination that encapsulates the essence of Ferrara's history and art, in a breathtaking itinerary, set up to perfection.

Enriching the halls of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, more than one hundred works, from all over the world, have returned to their home city in order to narrate the era of the centrality of the fabulous man, with its renewed artistic and cultural ferment. Starring on stage, Ercole de' Roberti and Lorenzo Costa are linked by a fil rouge that leads the latter to give new nuances to the poetics of the former, aligning it with a slightly later era.

Therefore, this is a one-off opportunity to admire - and maybe discover for the first time - the sublime work of two geniuses of the Ferrarese school, flanked by illustrious contemporaries such as Mantegna, Cosmè Tura, Marco Zoppo, but also Niccolò dell'Arca, Guido Mazzoni, Antonio da Crevalcore, Boccaccio Boccaccino, Francesco Francia and Perugino. A dialogue on the first Renaissance in Ferrara, so rich in exchanges of artistic and cultural value, comparisons and openings to other territories, history and magnificence.
